With aromas of green apple, lemon and vanilla, this is a bright, crisp Chardonnay with just a touch of oak. Bold and juicy on the palate, with a touch of minerality and firm acidity, we think this is a fine example of the unique characteristics of our property.
Readers looking for a classic Russian River Chardonnay that has the textbook richness of the appellation yet stays fresh and vibrant will love the 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley. Coming from a mix of the single vineyards and aged 8 months in French oak, its lighter gold color is followed by a great nose of buttered pineapple, tart citrus, white flowers, and a kiss of honeysuckle. It's aromatic, has great purity, is medium-bodied, and finishes with bright acidity. In short, it's a terrific Chardonnay that will evolve for 5-7 years.
